Teaming Up for Tobacco-Free Kids is a team of organizations and companies concerned about the effects of tobacco use on kids. The team encourages elementary school children to make healthy choices and to stand by those choices. It also recognizes and respects the traditional Aboriginal use of ceremonial tobacco as opposed to the habitual misuse of tobacco.

Lungs Are For Life     

The Lung Association’s free school program for smoking prevention. It has been developed especially for Ontario teachers and students – from Kindergarten through Grade 12.

  • Health Canada has rated Lungs Are For Life as one of the top three smoking prevention programs in the country.
  • Lungs Are For Life meets the expectations in the new Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum and is endorsed as an educationally valid resource by the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association (Ophea).
  • To ensure success, the program has been field-tested in over 250 classrooms across Ontario.



Young people in Grades 4 to 8 begin to decide whether they will experiment with tobacco. It is vital to help these children develop the skills they will need to stay smoke-free.

Grade 4 is the only grade within the Healthy Living strand of the HPE curriculum that concentrates on tobacco.
